What people are saying about Photo Studio on Giggster

This studio is brilliant. It is kitted out and has everything any brand would need for a shoot day including monitors, backdrops, kitchen, screens, lighting etc. The building itself isn't...mainly access. The studio is on the third floor of a mill building, so at least 100 steps up and doesn't have a lift. We were told the lift had been out of service for the last month and was due to be fixed within the next few weeks. However, one of our models had visited this same studio over a year ago and it was the same. We're a baby and toddler clothing brand so had parents (and grandparents) climbing up dozens of stairs with buggies and everything else. The studio would be ideal for a brand doing a small shoot with not a lot of equipment or apparel/product items to shoot.
